About the LAP

What is the Learning Assistance Program (LAP)

The UVic Learning Assistance Program connects students with specialized tutors and learning strategists for one-to-one, personalized learning support. Our passionate team of graduate student tutors and learning strategists love working with, and learning from, students from all walks of life and academic fields. We value fostering students’ long-term success by embedding learning strategies into content tutoring, and fostering students’ self-determination and strengths awareness. We love to celebrate your successes and help you through the challenging parts of your courses.
